One, and the main, aim and object of Sigma Chi has been, and is, to develop and train broad-minded men who can recognize the wholeness of things and who are not bound down to a contracted, eight by ten notion of exclusiveness. There is an absolute necessity for such men.
-Founder Benjamin Piatt Runkle
Sigma Chi is a brotherhood with roots in friendship, equality and education as part of their overall responsibilities to the broader communities in which they live. They achieve these ideals through promoting those character qualities embodied in their Rituals, and continuously reaffirm their purpose through the observance of Sigma Chi’s Governing Laws and through adherence to the decisions of their legislative assemblies, which empower and direct their activities.
In addition to its 217 undergraduate chapters and 145 alumni chapters, Sigma Chi is comprised of four operational entities: the Sigma Chi Fraternity, the Sigma Chi Foundation, the Risk Management Foundation and Constantine Capital Inc.
The fundamental purpose of the Sigma Chi Fraternity is the cultivation, maintenance and accomplishment of the ideals of friendship, justice and learning within their membership.
Sigma Chi Fraternity best serves its purpose by developing, implementing and monitoring programs that foster leadership, build character and promote positive relationship skills which, in turn, enable our members to become productive and caring participants in their families, colleges and communities.
Core Values, Vision and Mission
Sigma Chi’s core values are friendship, justice and learning. Their vision is to become the preeminent collegiate leadership development organization-aligned, focused and living their core values. Their mission is to develop values-based leaders committed to the betterment of character, campus and community.
The Theta Omicron Chapter of UC Davis
The chapter house is located next to Kappa Alpha Theta, Sigma Nu and Tau Kappa Epsilon at 400 Parkway Circle directly across from the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC).
As of August 2005, the National Fraternity has added the Huntsman Cancer Research Institute to it’s official list of charities. The Theta Omicron chapter will continue its work to support them through their philanthropic efforts which have averaged over $20,000 in recent years.

Every year, the Theta Omicron Chapter of Sigma Chi executes at least one Philanthropy event and several Community Service Projects per quarter. Our biggest Philanthropy event occurs in Spring Quarter: Derby Days.
Past events include:
- Carving for the Cure: our annual fall philanthropy where we host a pumpkin carving event. All proceeds are donated to the Huntsman Cancer Research Institute.
- Puppy Love: our annual winter philanthropy where the community comes to our house and plays with adoptable dogs from a local humane society.
- Derby Days: our week-long spring philanthropy involving various events and competitions among sororities. We hope to donate over $20,000 to the Huntsman Cancer Research Institute solely from this event in the spring of 2017 for the 4th consecutive year.
The members of the Theta Omicron chapter of Sigma Chi seek to uphold the values and aims of their Fraternity.
